When You Have No Plan


After Bowie released "Blackstar" and shortly after left us, we realised that was his parting gift or parting shot depending on your viewpoint. Either way it was, and still is a stunning album. After his death rumours have surfaced about a series of albums to be released in the future but this may just be hope or rumour, lots of Jimi Hendrix material appeared after his death but nothing that could be deemed essential.

Then an EP appeared called "No Plan" consisting of three songs led by "Lazarus" a stand out from "Blackstar" and an amazing song , he knew where he was bound. I made the assumptions these were songs that failed the cut for "Blackstar" and so have put off buying it .... until last week.

Over the last few days I have had it on repeats and , in my opinion the three "new" songs are stunners, not quite up to "Lazarus", but brilliant nonetheless , featuring awesome bass and guitar arrangement with top notch vocals and lyrics from Bowie himself. This is a man and band at the top of their game.

The tracklist is:
  • Lazarus
  • No Plan
  • Killing A Little Time
  • When I Met You

You can pick up "No Plan" for a few pounds, do it and you will be in possession of a masterpiece.
